Monday fashion inspirations - Mori girls

It's not Monday yet, but it will be by the time I'll get home) And next week is going to be really busy for me, so I'm not sure if I'll have time to blog. So I'm posting it now and stepping out the door to see my friends for a nice dinner and movie) Have a great evening, everyone (or a great day, it depend's on your time-zone))
I really like the mori girls style. In translation from Japanese it means "girl from the forest". It's an amazing street style trend, the mixture of ethnic, folk, lolita-style and others.

Mori girls like ethnic dresses, layers, lace, knitwear, floral prints, plaid and polka dots, silver jewelry, pocket watches, fabric covered buttons, flower pins and fairy-tales.

This girls are layering like crazy - vintage dresses, oversized knitwear cardigans, shawls and scarfs, pocket watches and keys pendants, faux fur earmuffs, stockings and fingerless gloves, etc.
This style was born on the streets of Japan cities, was called "mori girl style" by fashion magazines and took over the world in no time. I love it to pieces - it's cute, creative, poetic and mysterious, very feminine and really shows person's ability not just to wear nice clothes, but to create amazing outfits, which are telling the stories.
I can't call myself a full-time mori girl, but I always find a lot of ideas and inspiration in this outfits, as well as in steampunk subculture. Would I wear Victorian dresses and goggles or lace dresses and huge cardigans every time I go to buy a carton of milk - of course not. Do I enjoy incorporating some floral dresses, huge scarfs, watch-pendants, fingerless gloves and earmuffs in my outfits occasionally - you bet I do!)))))

  8. It's a pleasure seeing both our posts featured in the IFB Links a la Mode for this week! Pleased to meet you, I'm Leah of Circle City Style. I've become interested in dolly kei lately, which seems to incorporate elements from both the mori trend you've featured here, and the lolita trend of dressing that's been around in Japan for quite some time now. Happy to see that mori is getting seen all over. It's a fascinating and beautiful style-tribe.

  9. Fascinating! I hadn't heard of mori girls before, but I surely like their look. Their outfits are youthful and very feminine, but they seem more thoughtful, modest, richly textured, and cozy than the Lolita style.

    I'll definitely keep my eyes open for more mori girls in the future, and I'll be glad to have a name for their style.

    Hmm...I'm reminded of a favorite outfit captured by the Sartorialist here:
    Girl in Omotesando, Tokyo

    Would she be considered a mori girl, I wonder?

  13. I love the organic feel of the Mori look. Is that just from the pictures you have selected or is that a signature of the style?
